7 tips for your workout in summer

Stay cool during your workout in summer
We are heading into another super-hot week!
That’s why we want to share some tips with you for working out comfortably in the heat.
Listen to your body
If you feel dizzy, nauseous, light-headed, disoriented, tired, or you stop sweating, stop immediately and go into the shadow to cool off. These are the first signs of heat illness.
Find the right time
Usually, it’s the hottest between 10 am and 6 pm, so try to do your training earlier or later.
Dress to sweat
Light colours will help a bit, and also avoid cotton clothing but prefer technical fabrics. They will absorb your sweat much better, transporting it to the outer surface where it evaporates.
Stay hydrated
It’s always important to drink enough, but during heat waves, it becomes essential. A little tip on how to figure out if you drank enough: you should weigh the same before and after your workout.
Slow down
Even if you keep up the same feeling of effort during your workout, you will be slower in high temperatures than you’re used to. It’s normal, so don’t push too much or be sad when you didn’t beat your PB.
Research has shown that athletes perform better, when they cool down their bodies before going out in summer. It doesn’t make a huge difference for us normal people, when not every second counts, but it’s worth to give it a try.
Stay inside
This is a no-brainer, but move your training spot into the shadow or even stay inside where it’s cooler.
